THE STUDIO SPACE
The light filled studio occupies the whole of Halvorsen Hall (B:1970), which until 1999 housed the Perth City Band.
The building is located in the middle of the southern (city side) half of Robertson Park.
In 2000, the Hyde Park Precinct Group and the Mayor of Vincent helped five artists find the new studio space, after the Wellman Street Artists Studio closed.
The studio is open plan, with the current five artists sharing the space to suit their individual creative projects, scale and time frames. The space is also shared with approximately 90 recreational and professional art students. A blended space such as this fosters the creation and sharing of art and art related activities.
West Australian (WA) visual artists and craftspeople face a significant challenge finding, and retaining, stable studio spaces suitable for the challenging process of creative production. This is quiet different to the presentation of their art such as exhibitions, public art, street art. More detail can be found in the WA Government funded Artists' Studio Provision: a new vision for WA, a 2014 report undertaken by Artsource and Black Radley Ltd.
